Medway Small Steps Service
Small Steps is a new service providing support and advice for families whose children are either pre or post diagnosis of Autism and/or ADHD.
We are working closely with Medway council to deliver the Medway Small Steps Pilot Service. The service will work in line with the Local Authority’s Vision for Medway Children and Young People, to ensure they are Thriving, Healthy and Learning Well.
We offer support to families to enable them to get the right advice and direction from the beginning. We work closely with Health professionals, education settings, and the local authority to enhance what is available to families. The Service offers information workshops, specialised parenting groups, and can provide parents with a Project Worker or a Volunteer Befriender who will offer home visits and 1:1 support within the family home.
We invite inquiries from anyone interested in training as a Volunteer Befriender for the service. Volunteer Befrienders can support families to access social activities, attend medical appointments and offer a listening ear.
